Miyajima Aquarium

On the other side of the island is the aquarium. It only shows animals/fish from the surrounding area.

Oyster beds
 They had fresh and salt water exhibits. We met three porpoises and many penguins. They also have an extensive touch-tank area to pick up starfish, horseshoe crabs, and other crab species.

 Nemo doesn't translate and it was the one word we could make out from all the locals at this tank. All the children were screaming "Nemo!"

Posing w/ Nemo
It took me a while to get used to the map layouts on all the plaques. Japan is in the center instead of having it be a part of the far east.

This guy was just ugly...
